To effectively use Excel to draw multiple locations in a single sheet of the workbook, you will need to select cell references as the target of your drag and drop (or mouse) operation. The areas to be included in the new sheet will be automatically created on the left or right side of the workbook’s active sheet.
To map multiple locations in Excel spreadsheets, select the cell you want to include in the new sheet of the workbook (in the vertical direction), hold down the SHIFT key and drag the location to the new sheet. The location will appear in the active sheet’s right column and will be in the full range of latitudes and longitudes, as defined by Excel.
The new location will be added to the active sheet’s workbook’s left-hand column and will be within the range of the spreadsheet’s latitudes and longitudes. The specified location will appear in the active sheet’s right column and will be within the range of the spreadsheet’s latitudes and longitudes as defined by Excel.
In addition to the features described above, when you map multiple locations in Excel, you will automatically include the cell references to the selected cells on the left or right side of your workbook. If you are only working with a few Excel workbooks, you might not want to display these references to the user because it is usually necessary to copy and paste to the next sheet before moving on to the next location.
When you draw multiple locations in Excel, you may also wish to use a specific range and cell ranges in which to map the locations. You can have all locations included in the active sheet but you will have to add specific ranges to each location you want to include. You will also have to re-select the entire range from which you will be drawing the new location.
You may be wondering how this works in practice. You will need to know that it works because a range is a collection of cells in which a range contains a collection of cells. However, the range used in the Excel workbook is the workbook itself, the active sheet. When you drag and drop the location to the active sheet, you will need to make sure that you are selecting a range containing cells with the same names as the location you are about to drop the location too.
Also, for the locations you select to be included in the active sheet of the workbook, you will need to make sure that all of the cells to which you drag and drop the location will have additional workbook references. However, once you have done this, you will automatically be able to see all of the locations that you have drawn in the workbook. When you move on to the next location, you will be able to drag and drop the locations as normal and also have the locations in the active sheet of the workbook automatically added to the selected locations. The cells to which you have added the locations will also automatically be included in the location as well.
